The Christie at Macclesfield will treat its first patient on 13 December.

Designed by AFL Architects and built by Vinci Construction UK, the two-storey NHS facility will provide closer-to-home care for more than 1,500 existing Christie patients.

The more than 28,000 sq ft building offers outpatient care, palliative care, holistic support and information services. It provides staff with the ability to conduct 12,500 radiotherapy treatments a year. It can also enable 6,800 chemotherapy and haematology treatments as well.

According to the NHS, The Christie at Macclesfield has the ability to accommodate 46,000 patient visits a year.

Having local access to treatment can make a difference for patients, with the NHS noting that many patients from Macclesfield used to spend hours travelling to Manchester for treatment, especially those who are undergoing radiotherapy which requires a visit every day for up to six weeks.

“It has been a pleasure to deliver another successful project for The Christie,” said Vinci regional director Garry Bowker.

“We were first engaged on this project at the height of the pandemic last year and to be stood here today looking at this exceptionally high-quality facility delivered on time is an absolute credit to everyone involved; the VINCI project team, our supply chain, design team, the client’s professional team, the wider stakeholders and of course The Christie themselves,” he continued.

“This new facility will bring class-leading cancer treatment services to the people of East Cheshire and surrounding areas and will undoubtedly improve outcomes.”

Vinci handed over the project on 8 November.
